Bereik en inhoud

Adam's Peak Hotel, Hatton. - Glad to get Trevy's letter and the newspaper cutting of [Desmond] MacCarthy's dramatic criticism. A 'breath of Apostolicism' always comes with 'renewed astonishment in this country'. Forster has sent him his book ["Where Angels Fear to Tread"]; thinks he agrees with Trevy about it; it 'amused & at the same time annoyed' him, the tragedy especially annoying him. Is here for a month in the Ceylon mountains as he had a bad case of typhoid in Jaffra; has had to take a month's leave to regain his strength. Is not enjoying Does 'not care for wandering about in second rate hotels' in the society of teaplanters and American tourists; the latter are 'absolutely astonishing; their sole standards of value seem to be money and a curious form of liberty, which consists of forcing every man to learn nothing but how to make money'; always ends up losing his temper with their 'abominable patriotism', as he did with an old gentleman who insisted on explaining 'how disgracefully we ran England and the colonies and how much better America could and did theirs'. Hopes Trevy will let him know when he has published his next book.
